Freepaid (Pty) Ltd. was established in 2003 to give cellphone users a convenient new mechanism to purchase Airtime directly from their phones. The original IT platform was completed in 2004 and the first service was launched in the same year. Since 2004, Freepaid has evolved into being primarily a business-to-business prepaid solutions provider. Our systems enable businesses to tap into the prepaid market, either through our wide range of turnkey solutions, or API. Freepaid also assists businesses in the development and implementation of their airtime strategies, underpinning these strategies with bespoke solutions such as the mobile recharge system currently employed by Mr Price Group. A large number of businesses now rely on Freepaid’s real time, straight-through processing technologies to give them the competitive edge they need for success in the airtime industry.
FREEPAID’s vision is to be one of the top 5 prepaid product providers in South Africa. We will make a significant contribution to keeping people connected, in South Africa and in the rest of Africa. We will be known for our technical expertise, our transparency, our integrity, and the enjoyment we get from what we do.
Freepaid’s mission is to provide virtual prepaid products and distribution systems that empower businesses to offer virtual products effectively and profitably.
Freepaid is guided in all our business dealings and relationships by the following 3 core values:
- Chemistry (Connecting with our customers)
- Competency (Continuously becoming better at what we do)
- Character (Doing business with integrity, accountability and purpose)
